Personal information means identifying information about an individual in oral or recorded form. Any data that has been collected in which all personal identifiers have been removed, such that the information could not reasonably be used to identify the individual, is not considered personal information.
Identifying Purposes of Collecting Personal Information
Real Estate Agent will identify the purposes for which personal information is collected at or before the time the information is collected. If Real Estate Agent intends to use personal information for any other purpose, we will seek your consent.
